Five Things I Am Doing This Summer to Grow and Foster Growth #tmilearns

I can’t count the number of times I have heard this phrase since leaving the classroom, “Oh, I am so sorry you have to work all summer.” My response is always the same. “No, don’t be. I love summer work.” It is in the quiet of my office, when the students and teachers are gone, … Continue reading Five Things I Am Doing This Summer to Grow and Foster Growth #tmilearns

Leading and Learning at #ASCD #Empower18 – @ASCDconf @ASCD #ASCDEmpower18 #seeyouinBoston

If you were to glance at my bookshelf, one thing may stand out to you. On the spines of almost every book on my shelf you will find that the majority of the titles are published by one organization, ASCD. This would not have been the case a few years ago. Sure, I had a … Continue reading Leading and Learning at #ASCD #Empower18 – @ASCDconf @ASCD #ASCDEmpower18 #seeyouinBoston

Innovation Kitchen: What’s Cooking? – #NAISAC @NAISNetwork #TMILearns @TMIEpiscopal

I've never seen myself as a mountain climber, but after yesterday's Innovation Kitchen session at the NAIS Annual Conference, I am reconsidering. I love the metaphor of a school's journey to innovation as a climb up a Magnetic Mountain, a series of day hikes, ascents and descents, and summits of innovation. All the while, the … Continue reading Innovation Kitchen: What’s Cooking? – #NAISAC @NAISNetwork #TMILearns @TMIEpiscopal

Setting Conference Intentions @TMIEpiscopal #TMILearns #NAISAC @NAISnetwork

I'll admit it. I am a conference fanatic. So, when our Headmaster sent me an email to save the date for the National Association of Independent Schools Annual Conference, I wasn't about to say no to that. Besides being excited about the fried chicken at Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint and the fact that I will … Continue reading Setting Conference Intentions @TMIEpiscopal #TMILearns #NAISAC @NAISnetwork

What do comfortable clothes, a computer, a long school break, and professional development have in common? Engaged teachers in the Digital Age. Over this past winter break, several TMI faculty members were able to participate in the annual Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit (Ditch Summit), a nine-day virtual event held every December that brings together … Continue reading #ttlsummit in action @teachtolead #DitchSummit part of the new era of professional development: Guest post by @kwfaulk and @lucyduncunedu #TMILearns

Guest post by Alice Bilbrey I've been a long-time user of Google Docs and Google Classroom as a part of my teaching practice, so I was thrilled when I received the go-ahead from TMI to open up a Google Classroom for my AP English Language and Composition course. I explained to my juniors that a … Continue reading Join Me in the Cloud: Guest Post by @alice_bilbrey – @TeachToLead #TTLNetwork #TTLSummit #TMILearns

German Education Part One: Project-Based Learning – #BLOG365 Day 261 @TOPTeachGermany #TOPStudyTour #PBL #PBLChat

I have been holding off on posting about German education because I knew it would be a meaty post that required some time to flush out. So, this will be part one of a small series on German education. I can't do justice to the German education system in one blog post! Before I begin … Continue reading German Education Part One: Project-Based Learning – #BLOG365 Day 261 @TOPTeachGermany #TOPStudyTour #PBL #PBLChat
